Lazy Woman’s Garden

I was all set to write about how I finally used up the last of the Meyer lemons but instead I spent some time taking pictures in the yard. (Yes I did use them up – preserved Meyer lemons. More about that later.) I am happy to report the garden is doing well with not too much help from me. Still pinching some sages and pulling a few weeds, but never breaking a sweat.

I’d be sitting on this bench but it isn’t quite finished. Thought I’d move it outside so the wood could weather in and darken.

Toyon (Heteromeles arbutifolia) berries still holding on – amazing! Nice combo with the Claremont pink-flowering currant (Ribes sanguineum var. glutinosum ‘Claremont’).

Fuchsia-flowering gooseberry (Ribes speciosum) still going!

Potted non-native Agave attenuata in front of deergrass (Muhlenbergia rigens).

Assemblage of “stuff” in front of neighbors garage.

And more stuff.

Sugar snaps in a spider web of jute.

Milo is so happy we are back from our weekend getaway. He didn’t like the rain and really didn’t like being left, but he has a short memory. Thank you, Drew and Alice, for petsitting.
